I realize what I'm about to describe amounts to grossly irresponsible behavior and I should adjust future habits accordingly. That out of the way I'm hoping to get a straight answer w/o the added lecture that goes along with it. :)
First, I've had 20/20 vision my entire life and have never had an eye issue in my life. My friends are constantly amazed that I can read words on a billboard many seconds before they can make them out.
Now to the part that makes me an idiot: I'm constantly outdoors. If i'm not training for my next marathon or on my bike I'm probably on my boat on a sunny afternoon. I rarely if ever wear sunglasses
:(. During activities such as running/biking they've always seemed to give me a bad head ache even a few miles into whatever activity I'm taking place in. Despite this I've still never had any noticeable issues with my eyes outside of them getting bloodshot if lots of drinking is involved with any of the above.
Every year for the past eight I've lead a team on a massive bike ride across the state of Iowa. 400 some miles in 7 days, but more than a bike ride this is almost like a party on wheels. We bike and drink all day for all seven. It's our once a year let loose vacation type of thing and when we get home recovery is to say the least rough. This years ride had heat well over 100 on many of the days and yes I was outside w/o sunglasses for all these days.
Now to the question: The Sunday of the return I most laid on the couch and watched TV so noticed nothing out of the ordinary except how horribly hung over and sore I was from the week of drinking and biking. However Monday I noticed that reading black text against a white backdrop was somewhat blurry - something i've never really noticed before. I did panic a bit and attributed it possibly to recovery from a hang over and a couple google searched confirmed that those exact symptoms are associated with hangovers/alcohol detox. Well the problem is these symptoms are still with me today (Friday). I have no other hangover related signs so would have to assume there's possibly something else wrong? As an extra note it's not blurry to the point of double vision
or anything just have to stop and squint a bit from time to time to better read things and or highlight the text so the backdrop isn't white.
Is it possible that all day every day exposure to the sun (even more so than usual for me) could have caused some sort of burning that's causing this problem. If so is it usual for it to persist up to five days after the fact? If so how many days might I expect this to go on. I'm not anti-doctor and have no financial or insurance concerns with going just don't want to rush in if there might be a rational explanation based on everything I described above.
